26 Cornet Street is probably the earliest remaining complete building within the town’s medieval boundaries. The National Trust of Guernsey has restored this exquisite 18th century house as a Victorian shop and parlour. Classic sweets are measured out in ounces from glass jars into paper bags. Hard to find traditional toys and games are all here … potato guns, sugar mice and specialist teas in caddies – to name but a few. Be surprised to discover nostalgic items you thought you might never see again. With a quirky, varied and pleasing stock list, visitors rarely leave empty-handed.
2020 dates and opening hours:
Tuesday 14 April until Saturday 26 September
Tuesdays to Saturdays 10am – 4pm
Open from Thursday 03 December – Saturday 19 December as The Victorian Christmas Shop
The Victorian Shop and Parlour, 26 Cornet Street, St. Peter Port is just a short walk up the hill from the Town Church. Visitors to Hauteville House, Victor Hugo’s Guernsey residence, will most likely pass The Victorian Shop and Parlour on their way towards Hauteville.
